 Patch’s 5 Second Rule game surpasses 1 million sold

BELOIT, Wis. — Patch Products’ does it again with another game that has sold over 1 million copies! Popular party game, 5 Second Rule®, recently exceeded 1 million in units sold, and continues to be a top seller.

This fast-paced game is trickier than it seems…it should be easy to name three breeds of dogs, but can you do it under the pressure of five seconds twisting down, and with the other players staring at you, waiting for you to get flustered? Time’s not on your side, so just say what comes to mind and risk ridiculous answers slipping out as time twirls down on the unique twisted timer! It’s all in good fun with this fast-paced game where you have to Just Spit It Out!™

“Not many games can say they have reached the pivotal 1 million mark,” says Scott Flynn, Patch’s VP of Sales & Marketing, “With the uniqueness of the game engine that creates a fantastic social interaction, 5 Second Rule has become an evergreen within the party game category. This level of acceptance paves the way for what we see as the perfect extension to the brand with the upcoming launch of 5 Second Rule Jr. We appreciate the continued support of our consumers and retail partners and look forward to continued success.”

Sold in over 20 countries worldwide, 5 Second Rule has become a favorite in several different languages! It can be found in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia and many more countries.

5 Second Rule Jr., a family-friendly follow-up to the successful party game, is due to hit U.S. and Canada shelves this fall.
